on terror has cost america $1.4 trillion. that includes the wars in iraq examine afghanistan and money for veterans and other military expenditures. it does not include security within the usa. under president obama, the war on terror has cost about $569 billion. approximately 10% of the debt the president has run up in his 3 1/2 years on the job. when people like alan colmes who will join us in a moment say america's debt is largely war driven, the stats don't back that up. mr. obama added $4.4 trillion to the debt during his time in office examine again the war on terror expenditures comprise 10% of that. the important question is has the war on terror been worth the price in blood and treasure? let's run it down. in the combined wars in iraq and afghanistan, nearly 6600 americans have been killed. almost 50,000 wounded. while all life is sacred, those figures are nothing like the vietnam war. however, i believe most historians will look back on the iraq war as being a mistake. we could have brought saddam to his knees by blockading his country. we didn't have to invade it. the weapo
not persuaded that 20,000 additional troops in iraq is going to solve the sectarian violence. >> billions have been spent for us to trust the president on another tired and failed policy. >> as some point you have to knowledge the approach we are taking is not working and try a different approach. the president's attitude has been more of the same. >> we ended up, i think, misdirecting our resources. >> in afghanistan our situation has deteriorated and we had an attack on a u.s. embassy where nine servicemen were killed. >>neil: what do you think? >>guest: well, candidate obama, senator obama, he used hot rhetoric against the president. president bush was filled with resolve and he had the courage to do what he thought was right and he wasn't looking to gain favor at home. he was looking to do the right thing for the united states of america. he had thick skin. president bush was confident, quietly confident in his ability to make tough decisions. he had the courage to make tough decisions. he knew in would be flak. i don't think president obama should be as concerned as he demonstrated he was
world war ii. only six from iraq. 1600 from the vietnam war. we think about them. and we pray for the families. that's it for us on "the five." have a great weekend. bye. >> bret: what really happened at the u.s. consulate in libya? why does the official story keep changing, as new anti-american violence erupts in another country? this is "special report." ♪ ♪ >> bret: good evening, i'm bret baier. we'll have team coverage of the account of deadly attack on americans in a minute. first, pakistanis took to the street to protest, encouraged by the government. what transpired quickly turned violent and then deadly. across pakistan. at least 19 people died today in the worst anti-american protest going on in half a dozen countries in the region. the total debt count since the protection began stands at 49 now. correspondent leland vittert is watching the developing story from cairo. >> from pakistan to iran, sri lanka to lebanon, iraq to india, american flag and effigies of president obama burned. riot police battled for control of the street. and walls of tear gas protected a
. >> president obama visited texas to thank the troops to years to the day he ended the combat mission in iraq. he said they left iraq with honor. next week, president obama will make stops in norfolk, virginia, before heading to the democratic national convention. gordon peterson and scott thuman will be at the convention in charlotte next week. the we did look for their reports at 5:00, 6:00, and 11:00. a terrible day of traffic is expected the day after the holiday weekend. and some big cuts to the redskins coming up in sports. anncr: it'll start out as concrete and steel... but it'll become so much more. a new world-class resort casino in prince george's county. two thousand construction jobs to build it. four thousand permanent, good-paying jobs when it's done. hundreds of millions for maryland schools... real oversight to make sure the money goes... where it's supposed to. but none of it will happen unless we vote for... question seven this november. vote for question seven. and help build a better future for maryland. >> you are watching abc 7 news at 11:00. on your side
because of iraq and because of guantanamo. they hated us because of the torture -- he used the word and accuses his own country ever torturing. and he is now apologizing and promising to change course. we would no longer be tough. we would be lov show compassion. and we would get out of iraq. he set a deadline for afghanistan. he doesn't support the green revolution in iran. he shows the ayatollahs tremendous respect. he essentially protects them when they are under attack. he gets nowhere on the iran nuclear issue. he is equivocal in the arab spring. he leads from behind in libya. the theory was if we go soft and we are very nice, if we -- if we say [speaking in arabic [enough times, it will be all right. he decided, the theory and therefore the practice is going to be, retreat and withdraw. remember the line he uses? the tide of war is receding. >> sean: exactly. >> that means the tide of american power is receding. and the reason that american interests, schools, embassies, businesses are aflame in the middle-east from tunis to south asia is because things don't happen in a vacuu
. and the conflict still continues. every day hundreds of people in afghanistan, pakistan and iraq are killed. would it not have been better to have a more precise analysis and find out the true in-depth reason of the events of september 11th, make those findings transparent to the populations and the nations across the world, and then have a response in unison? of course the expense would have been much less. do you know how much has been spent during the afghan and iraq war? >> a considerable amount of money. but let me ask you this, mr. president. if nearly 3,000 iranians had been murdered in the way that americans were on 9/11 in tehran, how would you have reacted to the country that you believed had done that? >> translator: so you're saying that the country of afghanistan was at fault? was responsible? so you're seeing the responsible party as a whole nation? >> i think it is inarguable that al qaeda and osama bin laden's men, who worked for him, were training in afghanistan. so afghanistan was certainly knowingly harboring terrorists who were training to commit atrocities. >> translator: i be
and well in the middle east including a resurgance in iraq and they are there in libya and this is a terrorist attack and they were foolish to deny it to start with. >> so how would you characterize the moment in our foreign policy? >> a moment of glaring weakness and chickens are coming home to roost. very briefly could i tell you in iraq it is unraveling. they just convicted the president to death penalty. al-qaida is resurgance. the relations between the three different enities sunni and shia and kurds is breaking down. iran is influence is increasing and iranian planes is flying over iraq to syria with arms for assad as we speak. in afghanistan we have had to adopt a policy and not training with the afghan troops, thoo moons they will not be ready to take over the responsibilitis and frankly they never were and so we have to evaluate our whole situation. the attack on the base in kandahar was the most offensive. we lost 200 million worth of airplanes in the death and tragic death of two marines and in syria, the massacre goes on. and finally in iran we continue on t
years ago, because i was going to iraq, i asked you to be there for my dad. and you were. and for last four years, i can say with certainty he has been there for us. [ applause ] in moments both public and private, he's the father i've always known, the grandfather my children love and adore, and the vice president our nation needs. so tonight, mr. chairman, it's my great honor to place into nomination for the office of vice president of the united states, my father, my hero, joe biden. i move to suspend the rules and nomination by acclamation joe bid biden. as a democratic vice presidential candidate. [ applause ] >> the son of joe biden saying he wants to suspend the former rules, the formal roll call, and nominate joe biden. >> i know joe must be emotional right now. when your son calls you a hero, you got to feel it in the heart. we have a motion to suspend the rules and nominate joe biden by acclamation as a democratic party's vice presidential candidate. is there a second? all in favor of the motion say aye. all opposed. the ayes have it. the motion is adopted. pursuant to the co
that part of the world that we pulled out of iraq, we are are pulling out of afghanistan, that iran is continuing on with its nuclear program and they say our critics is that our allies no longer trust us and our enemies no longer fear us. >> chris, that is just false. our partners and allies value voters responded effectively and promptly when we have asked them to protect our facilities and our people. >> chris: well, let's -- it took three days in cairo. >> and what happened initially in cairo was not sufficiently robust when president obama picked up the phone and spoke to the president right away things changed. and that is an evidence of our influence and impact and what happened was that the authorities in egypt have been very robust in protecting our facilities not just in cairo but elsewhere in the country. the president has issued repeated condemnations of the violent response and called for calm and we have seen the same thing in yemen, in libya, in tunisia and many other parts of the world. >> why are we asking all nongovernmental personnel to leave sudan and tunisia. >>
below the more bloody, more deadly iraq war but approaching the 2000 number as the president tries to wind that down. one other point to note since we're having this conversation about the candidates for president, lot of those veterans who are coming home from iraq and afghanistan, here's where they live. the darker the state, the higher the veteran population. you see a state like virginia, state like new hampshire with a higher percentage of population so veterans in some of the battleground states, important constituency. >> dan, on the trail, in stump speeches, does the president regularly talk about afghanistan? >> well, it's never the focus of the president's stump speech unless he is talking to veterans or he's in a region that's heavy military. what you hear from the president is this promise, this campaign promise that he made to not only end the war in iraq but also wind down the war in afghanistan, as john was just talking about, pulling out troops by the end of 2014, handing over security to the afghan forces. but there's still a lot of concern out there about whether
calls for protest in iran and the gaza strip, and large protests expected in baghdad and iraq's second largest city basra, as well as amman, jordan. ian lee has been following the developments in cairo. ian, what's the scene like right now? >> reporter: well, right now christine, we still have battles going on between protesters and police. we're still seeing the tear gas used rubber bullets used, protesters responding with molotov cocktails and rocks. this battle has been going on since wednesday night. it's now friday, just about noon, so it's been a sustained battle. really no either side getting the upper hand on the other, but we're seeing injuries and more injuries on both sides as this battle continues. it is happening near the u.s. embassy on a road that goes from tahrir square to the u.s. embassy. right now the protesters are about roughly 80 to 100 yards from the embassy, but the police have been able to hold them off. the military's also building a huge concrete wall on the road leading to the embassy. this wall is about ten feet tall, and we've

island of democracy in that god-forsaken region? iraq! george bush's iraq. that's how you install a democracy in the middle-east, with the help of the united states military. it is not with a bunch of men running around, gang raping american journalists and shooting guns in the air. the idea that this was going to lead to anything good was preposterous. >> a big impact on the campaign -- last question. >> i -- i-- >>> booing god and booing jerusalem -- >> i think it ought to. but i think the economy is going to remain the predominant issue. but i don't know. this could get worse and worse. the more you back down to savage, the more they are going to attack. >> sean: we are living through at this time rise of radical islamists. >> you know what we are -- we are living off the good effect of the war in iraq. the good effect of the bush years. but you can only live off that so long. >> sean: i think this president is a wimp. i think this president doesn't have the courage to stand up to these terrorists. either that or he can't identify it for what it is -- >> he is utterly naive, yo

? >> no, but i'm saying that he is responsible for our failure in afghanistan and iraq. we left iraq and it is now disintegrating and in afghanistan, oh overruled his advisers on several occasions. and now, we have this situation we are leaving and the whole premise was to train afghans in order that we could turn over these responsibilities to them. and now how can we train work with these people? so that prololicy has been a failure. >> we will talk more with senator mccain later on in the program. fran, as we mentioned serves as a member of the advisory comment. s committee. as i said, you met with ambassador stephens, he had told another source that he was on the al qaeda hit list and there were security concerns. >> you know we had a long conversation especially about darna and we talked about their increase in numbers and access to weapons. he suggested i go to bengazi. it was august 29th, less than two weeks before he was killed. the other thing worth mentioning, as senator mccain said to you, chris stephens was with the rebells and my take on the situation was that it was fra
are failing in iraq. the iranian planes are flying over iraq to deliver arms to bashar al-assad and al qaeda is on the resurgence. in afghanistan we just saw the greatest single attack as far as money is concerned in our base where we lost some $200 million worth of aircraft. we have canceled training and operations with afghans because we don't trust them because of this killing by afghans of americans in uniform. by the way, this was a very, very professional attack they made on the base in afghanistan. in iran, the iranians do not think we are serious. we just criticize israel and tell israel they should not attack iran. in syria, 25,000 people have been massacred and the president of the united states doesn't even speak on their behalf. they believe that america is weak and we are withdrawing. that is what it is all about. >>neil: with the more violence the more the folks are inclined to say, to hell with him. i had ron paul on a couple of days ago and i mentioned to him, you thought it was a good idea to encourage the moderates throughout the middle east, particularly places like libya
that was in the united states. and with drawing from iraq and out of iraq and gradually with drawing from afghanistan. the president has made speeches of the outreach and this changed things. and what happened in the muslim world in the last week or 10 days is will powerful evidence that is changed. the administration is not prepare tod face that and they went in spin mode and it turned out badly when it was plain on most american's face that the september 11 and rounds of ammunition and attack on the embassy was denied by the for days and even now they keep falling back on the video. it was a terrible embarrassment. i am not sure it appeared that way in the coverage. but that is what it should be. >> chris: kasie? >> you can see as romney tried to deal with this as well as with the administration, he jumped on it initially and took the heat in the beginning, this is it an evolving situation you for the obama campaign. he spoke before all of the facts were known and the facts are still coming out for what happened. and that is something that the administration will have to deal with going forward as

is increasingly become a forum for a sectarian war. it is to destabilize libya, iraq, jordan and even turkey, and runs the risk of sectarian warfare that engulfs the middle east. it is urgent, it is serious, and the administration does not seem to have a policy that is commensurate with the seriousness of the problem and the repetitive events. and iran continues to move toward a nuclear weapon, and we seem to spend more time putting pressure on israel not to strike iran than figuring out what he with are going to do about iran. think i it's a troubling time. it's a middle east that's in meltdown and our policies seem to be in some sense frozen. the administration talks about how they have more time. i think we are running out of time, and i'm worried about it. >> how do we unwind ourselves out of this situation? no matter why it happened, we now have this situation and it is a crisis. what do we do? >> one of the things we don't do, we don't pull out. because these people who are demonstrating against us, that's exactly what they want to do. they want us to pull out and clear the space for t
fighting that war alongside a second war in iraq. two of the longest wars in american history fought at the same time, by a population of troops that makes up less than 1% of the american population. think about that. we have put an incredible burden on a proportionately tiny sliver of our population. and they did not get to those wars on their own. they didn't start those wars. the government sent them to do that work, in our name, right? a grateful nation, and all that. well, now americans coming home from those wars have an unemployment rate that is 35% higher than the national rate of unemployment. everybody's having a hard time in this job market, right? but veterans coming home from these wars have been at war. they have been doing things at their job for their deployment that employers may not understand on a resume. kandahar and baghdad don't exactly easily compare to the other addresses that employers are seeing on people's application for work. so the unemployment rate for vets is significantly higher, 35% higher than it is for the rest of the country. but that disadvantage
of the united states now is because he was against the iraq war from the start. as a state senator he spoke out against the invasion of iraq saying he was not against all war, but he was against that war. he was never against the afghanistan war, though. when barack obama became president, in part because of that early clear stance against iraq, he quickly made clear that he would keep his commitment to end the war in iraq. and he made clear that the war in afghanistan would grow. at the end of his first year in office, president obama announced a surge of tens of thousands of troops into afghanistan, putting more american there than george w. bush ever did. the president insisted that the surge into afghanistan would not last forever. he said the surge in troop numbers had previously over by roughly now, the end of september, 2012. now a little ahead of schedule, before the end of the month, the pentagon has announced that the surge into afghanistan is over. there had been as many as 100,000 americans on the ground in afghanistan. now it is down to 68,000 which, frankly, is still a huge number
